Dear Editor,

In e-exchanges this morning, this concept that Danville and San Ramon governments are more part of the 580 corridor than Contra Costa communities answered many questions for 24/680 south corridor residents. Neighbors within those cities fully understand their link to Walnut Creek and the 24 corridor that connects our area to the City, San Francisco. But somehow their governments focus south and east in their economic and political connections. Many comments by Danville and San Ramon neighbors illustrated concerns that Danville and San Ramon governments will continue to separate themselves from the 24/680 south corridor and become a traffic burden to the corridor.

Certainly, Monday’s Tri Valley Transportation Committee (TVTC) illustrated that selfish viewpoint with the following commentary about Alamo, “We haven’t been able to get anything done because of “one area”. “A small group” is always stopping anything from happening.” Selfish solutions to these tri-valley governments are to convert Alamo and Lamorinda roads into alternative traffic routing for Tri Valley commuters.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.

Please give us a hand while we flout federal law
